Our take on mSpy

mSpy is a user-friendly app, and unlike Xnspy’s basic interface, it boasts a modern design. As it was primarily developed for parents, the developers of the app have tried to keep things as simple as possible. mSpy supports desktop spying as well.

One drawback of this app this that you need to root your android device to enjoy the full functionality of its advanced features. The app does not offer features such as call and surround recording. There have been some negative reviews regarding the app’s customer service, stating that customer support lacks sufficient product knowledge to assist the users.
